Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is an important system update that includes performance, stability and security improvements for Windows 7, as well as a bunch of new features – many of them under the hood.

The new features included in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 are Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX, which enhance the system's virtualization capabilities. The first one, Dynamic Memory, lets you increase virtual machine density without sacrificing performance or security.

Other interesting changes are the improved reliability when connecting to HDMI audio devices, printing using the XPS Viewer, and restoring previous folders in Windows Explorer after restarting.

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 includes important updates and new features that improve the system's security, stability and performance.
